I must say that I am very glad that I came across this thread. It has been very informative. Special thanks to truckdog for the pictures of the original document. I too am a newbie named Daniel with a 51 F1. But unfortunately I have quite a bit further to go before I can drive it.

Now it it would seem that it has the older vin plate. It reads “F1R1MP254xx” (Forgive me for not wanting to put the whole number out in cyberspace.) It also has a model number of “1R0”. Can anyone help me decode the model? I'm not sure what I hope to get from it, but knowing which shade of green would be nice. Also, it is an 11 digit number. Is that unusual? My father once told me that it was usually 10 digits. As is the case with moidan's.

Daniel H.

I'd guess your model actually reads 1RC for a halfton pickup..

Your 11 digit serial numbers is right - we determined moidan's title was missing one character.

Wayne, working on my old 49 F-1 and I have the frame completely torn down. I was looking at the frame location you mentioned for the VIN # stamp and I cannot find that on mine. Is that supposed to be in front of, or behind where the motor mount is riveted to the frame?

Thanks, Will
Check out my pics if you get the chance.

This is not the engine number. Since you located it on the cylinder head...it's the Ford part number for the cylinder head...only.

The VIN (Vehicle Identifcation Number) registers the entire vehicle. The engine code is the 4th digit (1948/80 trucks).

F1H1KC15485: F1 = 1/2 ton truck only. Does not decode to pickup or any other body type, nor to a Cab & Chassis. / H = 226 1V I-6 / 1 = 1951 / KC = Kansas City MO Assembly Plant / 15485 = Numerical Sequence of Assembly.

At one time, automakers used the engine number to register vehicles, but if the engine was changed, the numbers no longer matched.

Les Kelley, the largest used car dealer in the world, and a Ford Dealer located in downtown Los Angeles' auto row (Figueroa St), came up with the VIN system.

Ford began using VIN's in 1948 for trucks, 1949 for Passenger Cars. By 1955, all US automakers were using VIN's.

Kelley also was the founder of Kelley Blue Books, which were used by banks, finance companies, used/new car dealers, as it listed the wholesale price loan value percentage for every vehicle.

Also listed what they were worth retail/wholesale, with this caveat on the bottom of every page: Deduct for reconditioning.

At one time, Blue Books also listed the location of the hidden VIN's.

This is incorrect and a very common mistake people make when decoding VIN's thru 1972.. The series code does not decode to pickup until 1973.

These trucks were also available as a Cab & Chassis, with a factory installed Flat or Stake Bed.

Just because it has a pickup bed on it...now, does not mean it was a pickup originally.

Incorrect, for the same reasons I listed above.

C was a carry over from 1947, when it referred to 1/2 Commercials.

There are no codes within the VIN, no codes listed on the Rating/Warranty Plates that define a pickup until 1973.
